A decent grade machine made laid paper in cream with a subtle texture. 

Abbey Paper Mills were established near the foot of the Greenfield Valley, north of Basingwerk Abbey, around 1821.

The mill was run by a variety of operators until 1854 when it was taken over by the London firm of Grosvenor, Chater & Co.; it was believed to be the largest paper mill in Wales at that time. Its output was high-quality writing and ledger paper, for many years using esparto grass imported from north Africa. 

The paper mill closed in 1982.
